MIND IN CAMDEN in association with FIRST PERSON PLURAL present:
Trauma-related Complex Dissociation (Origins & Consequences)
Trainers - Melanie Goodwin & Kathryn Livingston
Friday 9th November
Conway Hall, Holborn
ABOUT THE COURSE
This training, delivered by First Person Plural, will focus on complex dissociation which has its roots in childhood trauma. Dissociation is a common human experience. However, some of us can experience more complex patterns of dissociation- which may not be recognised. Such complex dissociation can affect our day-to-day lives, our needs and our relationship with any supporters, including professional support.
This training is suitable for those whose work includes supportive or therapeutic contact with people who experience complex dissociation. There are also a limited number of low-price places available for people with ‘lived experience’ whose primary concern may be to gain self-knowledge and self-understanding, rather than to gain skills around supporting others. We do ask anyone registering to understand it will touch on emotive subjects, and not to come on the course unless able to feel safe with this. Please ensure you have access, following completion of the day, to any support you feel you may need.
ABOUT THE TRAINERS
The trainers Kathryn Livingston BEM and Melanie Goodwin are experts by experience and proficient trainers. Details of their work can found at www.firstpersonplural.org.uk They use their lived experienced to help others to better understand the theory and share what has been beneficial to them over many years and why. They both have a diagnosis of dissociative identity disorder, DID which has helped them to access appropriate help but fully embrace that this was a means to an end and does not define who they are. They put a language to a complex area within mental health respecting that this is not necessarily how it is experienced by other survivors.
